Negotiations underway as Manchester United mull contract extension for ‘star boy Kobbie Mainoo

Manchester United is reportedly in talks with Kobbie Mainoo regarding a contract extension to reflect his growing importance within the first-team squad.

At just 18 years old, Mainoo has emerged as a key player under manager Erik ten Hag this season, demonstrating remarkable maturity and composure.


Despite signing a new deal with Old Trafford in February 2023, which ties him to the club until 2027, discussions have begun for an improved contract following his impressive performances during the 2023/24 season.

Both the club and Mainoo’s representatives are handling the situation calmly, with a focus on Mainoo’s continued development on the field for the remainder of the season.


Moreover, Mainoo has already triggered several performance-based incentives in his current contract.

Having made 18 senior appearances for United this season, Mainoo recently praised manager Erik ten Hag for aiding his transition from the youth ranks to the first team.

The discussions between Mainoo and Manchester United are expected to intensify over the summer months.
